A tortilla makes a handy mousepad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican and American fare at Sammy's El Pueblo in Springboro.
Sammy's El Pueblo's culinary team oversees a savory marriage of Mexican delicacies and American classics served in a bright, relaxed atmosphere. After scanning the menu, table denizens can clutch one of 25 juicy burgers—the eatery's core stomach filler—such as the bourbon burger, an aptly christened patty of ground Angus beef slathered in bourbon sauce ($8.99). Nine hot dogs, such as the julienned-corned-beef Reuben dog ($5.99), form the yin to the burgers' yang on the American half of the menu, and can be used like notches to keep track of baseball innings or days left in solitary confinement. Guests can also explore the roster of Mexican fork targets, influenced by family recipes, that include enchiladas, burritos, fajitas, and specialties such as the carnitas dinner ($10.99)—tender roasted pork, fresh pico de gallo, rice, and beans served alongside flour tortillas as soft as a down pillow that overindulges its kids.
Patrons can sip an imported Mexican beer or one of seven margaritas and quench visual thirst by ogling the eatery's palm trees and flat-screen TVs that hug the walls. Cool a revved-up palate with a craft beer and admire murals that, like frolicking on sandy beaches or possessing invalid currency, can convince diners they're in Mexico.
